A few years ago we developed the façade design for an inner city shopping centre in Mönchengladbach. The horizontally layered structure of the façade reacts to the spatial and topographical features of the surroundings and provides specific spatial responses.
The shopping centre’s large volume consists of stacked floor levels which meander independently of each other and are wrapped by an undulating façade whose three dimensional form reflects the differentiations in the urban space that surrounds. In gentle curves, bands of vertical blades draw pedestrians to the entrances, create terraces and roofed outdoor spaces and thus address the function of the façade as the interface between building and urban space. The steep topography of the surrounding terrain is integrated into the internal organisation of the shopping centre by allowing three of the four storeys to be accessible from ground level. 
The basic element of the facade strips are vertical ceramic slats in eleven different colours, which are produced in a manufactory located in the region around Mönchengladbach. In the style of the regionally typical "Feldbrand" clinker, they complement the coloratura of the city with their discreet play of colors.
